Hellhounds are mid-to-high level demons, often given as a Slayer assignment to mid-to-high level players. Hellhounds are an excellent source of hard clue scrolls, as they drop them frequently unlike other monsters.

StrategyEdit

As their combat level suggests, hellhounds are not an easy task. It's worth noting, however, that their high combat level is mostly reflective of their accurate and powerful attacks. Hellhounds have low defensive stats. Players with a low Defence level should bring the best armour that they can afford as well as high healing food. Alternatively, the Protect from Melee prayer can be used to nullify their attacks so high prayer bonus armour such as Proselyte armour along with some prayer potions constitutes an effective, although expensive strategy.

Prayer "flicking" can dramatically reduce the cost of fighting them; however, this requires close attention and probably some food to correct mistakes. Since they occupy a large space of 2-by-2 squares, hellhounds can easily be safe-spotted in Taverley Dungeon on rocks and columns and in the narrow corridors of the Stronghold Slayer Cave.

A halberd is also a cheap, but slow, method for completing this Slayer task or to pick up clues. Another popular strategy is to use Bones to Peaches spells. Those without the requirements to cast it may use the tab version alternatively. Peaches heal 8 hitpoints each and using this spell can greatly increase the length of trips before needing to bank.

Players hunting hard clue scrolls can kill hellhounds located east of the Deserted Keep while wearing a ring of wealth (i). This doubles the drop rate a clue scrolls from hellhounds, from 1/64 to 1/32.
